Education Permanent secretary James Ole Kiyiapi yesterday formally resigned so as to launch his presidential bid. He said that the President had accepted his formal resignation.
In line with the Section 43(5) of the Elections Act, public servants who have an interest in politics should resign. Others who have resigned include Dr. Evans Kidero who resigned from Mumias Sugar Company so as to run for a seat as the Governor of Nairobi. That seat has also attracted the interest of Town Clerk Philiph Kisia. He is running his last month in office.
The election wave has started as other people who are interested in several seats have started showing signs that they will run. What irks me most is the graffiti pasted all over Nairobi showing so and so wants to run for this and that. Come on, lets be civilized for once. Guys like Waititu should pay for the cleaning of all that bull crap posted everywhere showing he wants to run for Governor of Nairobi. Especially Thika Super Highway. I think it was built to ease transport not to post messages of your political ambitions.
